DSPs simplify PMD Tolerance Testing of Coherent Receivers

New Ridge has been at the forefront in defining test methodologies and designing and manufacturing equipment to make PMD tolerance testing of fiber optical receivers quantitative, repeatable, and comparable. Our PMD sources have set the standard for the generation of PMD states to ease the often difficult and lengthy process of PMD testing. Then coherent Read more about DSPs simplify PMD Tolerance Testing of Coherent Receivers[…]

OFC is NRT’s ‘March Madness’ (I need a life ;-)

Its March again, and that means its OFC time!  The 2018 fiber optic ‘March Madness’ will also be our ‘Sweet 16’ year of participation. If you are at the show, please stop by the New Ridge booth, 4440, to talk, catch up, and see what’s new from NRT.  Specifically we will be demonstrating the NRT-8000, Read more about OFC is NRT’s ‘March Madness’ (I need a life 😉[…]

Q&A with Dr. Henry Yaffe, Founder and President of New Ridge

I recently was interviewed by CEOCFO Magazine. The Q&A was published on line. You can read the article here. We covered the past, present and future directions of New Ridge. I also managed to describe (and pitch) our products. The article is available for download in PDF format (or formatted for mobile devices Mobile PDF).

IoT in Fiber Optical Test and Measurement

The Internet of Things (IoT) market is huge, and has the potential to become even larger. Market reports and white papers from research firms, industry leaders, and government agencies worldwide have predicted different, but equally impressive annual revenues for IoT-enabled tech in the trillions of dollars. And with so many variations given to IoT—from analytics Read more about IoT in Fiber Optical Test and Measurement[…]

New Features Enable New Test Capabilities for the NRT-8000 OSA

With the release of software version 2.1.0, the NRT-8000 is truly a powerful instrument. Some of our updates offer features typical of other OSAs such as scan averaging and data logging. And some of our new features extend the NRT-8000’s capabilities beyond the boundaries of traditional OSAs. Below we will describe the most significant new features and updates. Resolutions Read more about New Features Enable New Test Capabilities for the NRT-8000 OSA[…]

A Back-to-School OSA

In gratitude to the academics who push new frontiers of science and technology and train the next generation of scientists and engineers, we are announcing our 2016 ‘Back To School’ sale of the NRT-8000 compact OSA. For this limited time the NRT-8000 is priced below the normal academic discount. So academics, get a new Optical Spectrum Analyzer Read more about A Back-to-School OSA[…]

The Little OSA that Can

Last year New Ridge launched the NRT-8000 compact OSA. It was rated Excellent in the 2015 Lightwave Innovation Awards. Yet we had a lot of work left to do. We just returned from OFC 2016 where the NRT-8000 was the star of our booth. Being small and low cost are great selling points, but the Read more about The Little OSA that Can[…]

Are Ultrafast SOP Events Affecting Your Coherent Receivers?

I get a fair number of confidential phone calls and e-mails reporting coherent receivers unlocking due to very fast SOP transient events. These transients can be hundreds of thousands of radians per second, even over 1 million radians per second, within 10s of microseconds, followed by a slower relaxation in a few milliseconds. Such ∆SOPs Read more about Are Ultrafast SOP Events Affecting Your Coherent Receivers?[…]

Optical Spectrum Analyzer User-Interface

Below is a new video we put together  to introduce the user-friendly interface of our NRT-8000, Optical Spectrum Analyzer. This short video provides a brief step-by-step guide to operating and taking measurements with one of New Ridge Technologies’ newest products. Any Windows computer or handheld tablet can install and run this app. We have recreated Read more about Optical Spectrum Analyzer User-Interface[…]
